Guerrilla Aging: It’s Just Easier That Way, A Guest Post by Linda Tharp

February 13, 2015


In her own words: “Linda Tharp blogs at, home to her wry—and frequently sarcastic—observations. Formerly a medical editor and currently a runner nursing a post-surgical knee, she has plenty of time to admire her dazzling collection of Merino wool yarn she doesn’t have the patience to knit.” And in mine: Speaking of not having […]

Kanye, Kats and Kontroversy

October 27, 2014


Let’s be clear, right off the bat: This is neither a post about cats nor about Kanye.  This is, however, a post about what happens once one writes a blog post that may be less-than-favorable, albeit satiric, about American icons. Let’s also be clear about something else: Life in the Boomer Lane is non-aggressive to […]

September 30, 2014


WordPress now tells Life in the Boomer Lane that she has 10,000 followers.  She would immediately have to start purchasing larger hats were it not for several important facts: 1.

A Valentine for People who Read My Blog

February 9, 2014


Dear Readers, Life in the Boomer Lane spends a lot of time making fun of things in this world that make her laugh, make her crazy, make her angry, and have her believe we are all literally going to hell in a hand basket, and the hand basket is ratty and moldy and full of […]

This is My 500th Blog Post

December 1, 2013


There’s a great book by Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Harold, a sixty-something retired man, leaves his house in England one day with no other intention than to mail a letter to a former co-worker who is dying of cancer in a hospice at the northern end of the country. Harold passes […]
